The Italian Air Force’s C-27J Spartans, belonging to the 46^ Brigata Aerea di Pisa, reached the 10,000 flight hours milestone in July. The 12 new aircraft serving with the Aeronautica Militare were designed and manufactured by Alenia Aeronautica and delivered to the Air Brigade between 2007 and 2009 and have shown a high operational efficiency, providing the Air Force the ability to carry out numerous missions: since 2008, the ItAF C-27Js have been used in operations in the Afghanistan theatre of operations, where they have shown high reliability and flexibility, successfully accomplishing their missions in a demanding environment. Alenia Aeronautica guarantees the logistic support to the entire C-27J fleet in service with the Italian Air Force and has also installed a Full-Motion-type Flight Simulator at the Crews Training Centre of Pisa airbase. The Full-Motion Simulator, made by Alenia Aeronautica, has already been tested by the AMI pilots who operate the C-27J with positive results. The Simulator will soon be officially delivered to the Armed Force; they will be the first in Europe to be able to use a system of this kind.
